August is the time of year when we’re still enjoying everything the Alpena, MI area has to offer. But, it’s also the time to look ahead towards the new school year. Whether you’re a parent looking to get a new vehicle for you and your family or you’re a college student going off to school, you need a car that can get you through the year safely and in style.

That’s where we come in here at Dean Arbor Ford Lincoln. We’ve got a fantastic selection of both new and certified pre-owned Ford models perfect for all your back to school needs.

Whether you’re a college student or a parent driving your kids to school, there’s one vehicle that’s versatile enough to handle it all. We’re talking about the 2019 Ford Escape. This Ford crossover brings a unique blend of performance and utility to the table, all in a compact size. The 2019 Ford Escape comes in four trim levels: the 2019 Ford Escape S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. We recommend starting with the SE trim, which adds a more powerful turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. To make sure your kids are as safe as possible, we recommend opting for the Safe and Smart package that includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and more.

If you’re looking for something more compact but equally as rewarding, check out the 2019 Ford Focus. This model comes as both a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. Highlights include a comfortable ride, sporty steering and handling, a quiet cabin, and plenty of upscale and high-tech upgrades. Again, we recommend looking at the SE trim for more features like an upgraded engine.

Whatever your driving needs for the back to school season, we’ve got you covered here at our Alpena Ford dealership. From Ford service to new models, you’ll find what you need here. If you’re a college student looking to save, check out our selection of vehicles under $10,000
